    Your ex should get credit of for the 40 days so long as the 40 days was on that case. Whether you ex is sentenced to "time served" i.e. he can walk out of the court house and the case is closed is another issue. The judge could sentence your ex to a number of other types of sentences including the remaining 53 days.

    I suggest you contact myself or another attorney as soon as reasonable possible so that he or she can review the file thoroughly and determine the best course of action for you. This is not the type of thing that you can get an answer to over Avvo forum.

    You can only bill her for work performed after the date of the filing of the petition. To be safe I would wait to bill her until after the bankruptcy case closes or the automatic stay has been lifted. I wish I had a clearer answer as I sit here right now I am not sure if the automatic stay applies to collection on post petition debt. Patrick M. O'Reilly Attorney at Law 12845 Farmington Rd.

    A reaffirmation agreement merely re-obligates you to the debt post petition. It does not have anything to do with your name being on the deed. Your name will be on the deed until you either sell the property or the mortgage company forecloses on the property. I believe that you said that you have continued making payments. The mortgage company will likely not foreclose if you are current on your payment regardless of whether you did or did not sign a reaffirmation agreement. I...

    Depends on a number of factors. Has he ever violated before? What Judge he has? Who is Probation Officer is? Is he in compliance with the other conditions of his probation. Without more information I could give you a better answer. If you son is doing most of what he supposed to be doing on probation, then most of the time most judge will give him a second change. On the other hand if your son is not in compliance with most of the conditions of his probation, most judge will not hesitate...

    If he gets a personal bond in the morning and he does not have any holds he very well could walk out the front door of the court house. If he gets a bond that he or a family member is able to post he would probably get out by tomorrow evening. That is the same day as the court hearing but later in the day after the bond has been posted. I have not been retained on this matter. My thoughts above are based on limited facts and are not to be considered legal advice. Patrick M. O'Reilly...

    A warrant could issue in theory because the etg the next morning is technically a day late.

    I believe that the secretary of state will allow you to pay the driver responsibility fee with monthly payments. You can get your driver license back upon execution of the payment plan. My opinion is that those fees are not dischargeable in bankruptcy. Patrick M. O'Reilly Attorney at Law 12845 Farmington Rd.

    Many times people are in a hurry to file a bankruptcy petition. My feel is that absent an emergency type circumstance like a foreclosure sale it is never a good idea to file a bankruptcy petition too fast, especially a chapter 7 petition. A chapter 7 petition once filed cannot be voluntarily dismissed. I have found that in most case when a prospective client believes that he or she needs to file a bankruptcy petition quickly, they usually have more time to work with then they...

Setting aside a default judgment is a time sensitive matter. I recommend that you speak with myself or another attorney as...
